    I'm not sure really since I neither work for a top nor private school.
    I'm not elitist, nor privileged. I had to work very hard and deal with tough times to get where I am, so I want the best at all times.

    I hope not!



    The youngest I would date would be 21.



    Yes but thankfully I've not followed through with it yet.



    Those unis are fine tbh. I don't think it makes that much difference which uni you go to.
    Are you guilty of favouritism? Be honest..

    Not really. I teach hundreds of different kids each week, I don't have time for favourites and least favourites.

    A bit too personal really. I've added the teacher pay scales here though:
    Why title you thread 'Ask me anything' then?

    What university did you go to? Is the school you teach at a comprehensive, grammar or private? And is it a good school? Are the pupils easy to control?

    Really? A 22 year old man dated me when I was 16! I don't think it matters

    Have you always wanted to be a teacher?

    Have you got any hidden talents?

    Are you creative in any way?

    - A top 50 university, not going more specific than that.

    - Comprehensive (an academy)

    - I'd say it's an okay school but low level disruption and answering back are severe issues that plague every department of the school.

    - I enjoy the attention.

    - Depends on what mood I'm in (I would say I have quite severe mood swings). Generally, yes though because they're interesting.

    I have to politely disagree. If I dated a 16 year old, then I would officially be dating a Year 11. That's just wrong.

    - To find a woman that I can share my most intimate thoughts and feelings with. Added to that, to have children that I can be immensely proud of.

    - To have a really successful teacher relationship with one of the more difficult students in the school (I have struggled with every one of the hardcore students that I teach and I can't seem to reach any of them).

    - Algebra - solving equations, substitution, expanding brackets etc.

    - Yes although my parents wanted me to be a badminton player

    - Not really. I can make a funny noise with my knees but nothing other than that.

    - I'm okay with creative writing but can't draw, sing or play music.

    Absolutely fine to have a bit of variety in a degree. I just did maths on its own and actually wish I did a dual degree in hindsight.

    Would you date an ex-student, who you felt passionate about, if they were 18 and no longer attended your school?

    No. Purely because I would be unable to have a normal teaching life without hearing "disgusting... you're going out with someone that you used to teach" from both students and other teachers.

    If you fell in love with a student to the point of insanity and they were overage and wanted to be with you, would you resign for them?

    Only if I knew that I would be able to secure a job at another school. I doubt I would give up teaching altogether.
